“I have been following the story of Sich and Sirius Chan (Sich CEO) and how quality import caskets is really a game-changer for those of us who are struggling with increasing cremation rates,” said Mr. Howell, whose funeral homes currently sell Batesville caskets.

Mr. Howell highlighted the similarities between his business and Sich Casket, adapting to the times and the changing market. “The idea of Sirius Chan’s turning his family-owned furniture company into something that is a completely different product than they would have ever considered, that is a success story in itself.”

The next Sich casket giveaway drawing will be held at the end of May. To learn more about the monthly drawing and to enter, visit Sich.com or www.RethinkYourCaskets.com/YearFD. Participants need only enter one time to be registered for all the drawings throughout the balance of the year.

Funeral Homes are Struggling to Keep Their Doors Open

Ryan Thogmartin - August 13, 2017

This is a topic and conversation that does not get talked about or covered enough. We all want to put the blame on cremation and ignore the fact that many of the issues facing funeral homes aren't because families choose cremation but because of bad business decisions of many funeral directors who don't want to change or accept cremation.
